There is something so polished about matching swimwear and cover-ups. I’ve never really been in to this mix-and-match your bikini tops and bottoms – I like a nice simple two-piece or nowadays a one piece.
Having a matching sarong, kaftan or skirt to cover-up for when you hit the beach bar for a spot of lunch – just makes you feel so pulled together.
It’s like you planned your beach look and are confident in your choice.
Here is some of my favourites:
Bikini top – in store soon. Similar bralet £20 Topshop || Midi Skirt £48 Topshop
Swimsuit £88 J.Crew ||Skirt £84.99 J.Crew
** Love that this is called ‘Patio Skirt’ – doesn’t it just make you vision cocktails on the porch (or, is it just me that desperately wants to live in an American house with a wraparound porch in Palm Springs?)
Now, don’t get me wrong I have the odd few cover-ups that don’t match my swimwear – but they will always team-and-tone. Any pattern goes – stripes, florals, zig-zags but they will always be in the same colours.
Maybe I’m old fashioned – but I love the classic style of matchy-matchy beach wear and am defo going this way when choosing pieces for Miss Marnie.
So, on that note here’s some cute matching doubles and triples for you own little VIB (very important beach babe!)
